I am going to focus on my favorite from this list, which is Leverage a Google Slide Template to Collect Student Work.

I really like the idea of students creating a digital portfolio through Google Sites. This allows students to have a somewhat permanent record of what they accomplished in class. Many times at the end of the school year, I witnessed all I had taught them, quite literally get thrown in the garbage/recycling. This allows students access to their work after the fact as well as provides a snapshot of what was learned at the end of the year.

Grade sync Google Classroom To Skyward #edtech

I am often asked if Google Classroom and Skyward, our Student Information System, have a way to sync grades between each other. Well, at this point, there is nothing offered that will sync grades. It is possible for teachers to mass copy grades from Google Classroom into Skyward. It is a lengthy process that gets easier with experience. Take a look at the resources below.
